Baking Salmon Instructions:
Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place salmon fillet skin side down on the baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until salmon is easily flaked with a fork. (If you have small salmon fillets, just cook for less time).
Pan Frying Salmon Instructions:
Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat with cooking oil. Once the pan is hot, add the salmon so skin side is facing up. Cook for 2-3 minutes then flip over so skin side is down. Pour the leftover marinade sauce over top of the salmon and cook for another 3-5 minutes. I like to watch the clock during this time because I’m not a fan of overcooked salmon.
At this point, depending on how thick the salmon is, the sides of the salmon should have just turned white and it should be cooked. To check you can use a fork to see if the salmon flakes easily. If it does, and the insides aren’t translucent, then it’s cooked. Remove from heat.
Less than 1% of global salmon production is New Zealand King Salmon – also known as Chinook Salmon. This rare species is notoriously difficult to produce so most salmon consumed globally is Atlantic Salmon.
King Salmon must be farmed with care in superior conditions with plenty of space to thrive and minimal handling.
